NEW YORK — Dec 10, 2012 / ( —, an online magazine published by LEECHEE LLC, announced that the publication featured an exclusive interview with Korean-born artist Ran Hwang, The interview was published on Thursday December 6, 2012.

In the interview with Lively, the Brooklyn-based artist provides insight on the creation and meaning behind her artwork and how oriental philosophy plays a role in her process. Using fashion materials as various media for her pieces, Hwang mixes traditional and spiritual themes in building large installations. Her work involves repetitive manual effort, which the artist describes as time-consuming yet meditating. The message and theme behind her work consistently revolves around the practice of Zen and human spirituality.

Hwang explains the challenges she faced while pursuing a career in New York City, While being an artist in NY for such a long time, I always lacked enough time to wholly dive into my own work. Affording myself in the city was the most difficulty I had to confront, and that brought me the thirst for a new creativity. Thankfully, the habitual thirst has been a motivation for myself to always seek something new.”

Ran Hwang has been exhibiting at galleries all over the world since 1997 and won many awards for her artwork including the Gold Prize in the AHL Foundation Annual Arts Competition and the 2011 PS122 Studio Residency Program. Ran Hwang’s most recent exhibition took place back in April 2012 at the Leila Heller Gallery in Chelsea, NY.
